My hard drive is super slow.
Windows boots up in about 30 seconds but after that, the hard drive keeps working and working and working, for like 5 minutes after boot the hard drive light is still solid.
During those 5 minutes it takes forever to launch anything.
Games that shouldn't lag do.
Like a move in Civilization could lag for 10 seconds with the hard drive lit up. Every move where it has to access the hard drive just halts the system waiting for I/O.
I ran a chkdisk starting last night at 6pm, it's now 9am and it's only %81 complete.
It's a SATA2 Western Digital.
I've already ordered a new HDD from Newegg, but just help me understand, has anybody seen a hard drive die like this?
